From Newton Cardinal to Chicago Blackhawk
Last Monday, the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in Boston, beating the Boston Bruins, 3-2, in game six of the finals. With little more than a minute left in regulation, the Blackhawks miraculously came from behind to seal their Stanley Cup victory. As players and fans celebrated the great accomplishment, another team member still had work to do.
Adam Kempenaar, a 1993 graduate of Newton Senior High School, has been a Blackhawk for 11 seasons, although you won’t find a jersey with his name on it at the United Center. He started with the Blackhawks in 2002 and is currently the senior director of new media and creative services. He’s responsible for content across the club’s digital, social and publishing platforms — Blackhawks Magazine, stories and video on the website, the official Blackhawks mobile apps, as well as overseeing the team’s presence on Twitter, Facebook and other social networks.
Kempenaar received his first bachelor’s degree in English from Grinnell College and continued his education at the University of Iowa, where he received a bachelor’s degree in film studies and a master’s degree in journalism. Kempenaar has worked hard to ensure any project or career endeavor is a success. Prior to his start at the Blackhawks, he was a film instructor at the University of Chicago’s Graham School and is currently a member of the Chicago Film Critics Association.
